Nominees // 68th WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA AWARDS



The Writers Guild of America announced the nominees for the annual accolades presented for original, adapted, and documentary works, including many names familiar to the race already, like Spotlight, as well as a few refreshing entries, like Trainwreck and Straight Outta Compton.
